About the Book:

Alex's world feels gray and drab...until he tries painting his nails and discovers a world of color he has never experienced before. This picture book's gorgeous illustrations progress from black and white to full color as Alex, his diverse group of friends, and ultimately his family all express themselves by doing things they love to do. The sweet and timely rhyming story challenges gender expectations around emotions and activities, and asks the reader to consider: what colors shine through when you're just being you?

About our Guest:

Emma-Claire Sunday is an author and high school teacher who delights in bringing LGBTQ+ stories to the page. She's worked in outdoor education for the past decade, so she knows that summer camp is a magical place where campers and counselors can learn to express their true selves.
